Our understanding of the world is changing faster than ever. While these changes may occur at cosmic, global or local scales, they are nevertheless mutually connected; intertwined.
Science and technology have given us knowledge and have opened up the vastness and the complexity of the cosmos. We are now able to travel in space, visit other planets and even see beyond our own galaxy. On the other hand we can no longer navigate through the starry sky and our human understanding and connection to the cosmos is no longer present. It is contradicting that we know more about the cosmos than ever before, and yet we find ourselves more disconnected from it.
With this project I wish to investigate cosmic connection as a way to reinstate and celebrate our long bond to it.
Through three types of temporary dwellings i explore cosmic connections in the small Island Nyord in Denmark. Each dwelling correlates to three timescales; the hour, the day, the month, which allow for different understandings of the cosmos by relating to different spheres and cosmic rhythms.
I wish to explore dwellings that transcends the praticality of shelter and at the same time works as mediators that can bring us closer to the wonders of the cosmos.
